    Is there another series, “NYPD RED 8”, coming out soon?

    I have read 2 3 and 4. Missed the original one and am looking forward to 5 and 6. Love the books.

    I was not a reader until I had nil tv reception on a holiday and read the first NYPD series. Hooked line and sinker. Just finished no4. So 4 books in 3 months. For me a record now onto Murder Games until I can get NYPD5 and 6.
